Due to it's
impact on Tompkins County government and residents, the undersigned
residents of Tompkins County request a resolution to be drawn and
passed by the Tompkins County Legislature requesting and supporting
immediate and complete repeal of the misnamed NY “SAFE Act.” We
also urge the Tompkins County Sheriff and District attorney to use
good judgment and discretion concerning enforcement and as to the use
of their limited resources. The NY “SAFE Act” violates the Second
Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America and was
passed to hastily without adequate thought, passed unread by many
legislators, when Gov. Cuomo attempted to waive the constitutionally
required three-day waiting period between the introduction of
legislation and a vote, claiming immediate necessity when there was
in fact no true emergency. We the undersigned residents request the
lowest law enforcement priority for this law pending repeal and that
the County hold spending for such enforcement to the lowest possible
level. We urge the County to join in challenges to the
constitutionality and legality of the NY “SAFE Act” in our
Repeal Restrictive Gun Control Law
Tompkins County Residents
In a vote held in the State Legislature on Monday, January 14th, 2013, the Second Amendment Constitutional Freedoms of New Yorkers was unjustly restricted. This legislation was rushed through without any input of the people of the State of New York.
We the people of Tompkins County want to make our voices heard against this legislation. We are asking that every gun owner, hunter, sportsman and supporter of the Second Amendment/Individual Freedoms, sign this petition and stand together to repeal the NY Safe Act, as well as make their voices heard to gain our rights back provided to us by the Constitution.
